At pretty much the last minute, here's my entry.  It's a quote from the movie Carrie.  Carrie's mom says it to her, to which Carrie replies, "Breasts, Mama.  They're called breasts, and every woman has them."  I love it.

I went crazy on the stitching, I know.  I've been wanting to do some blackwork, so I did whole hella lotta blackwork.  I just started doing it and it just got denser and denser...and I kept thinking I was crazy the whole time.  I could have made it so much simpler  Roll Eyes  I started filling in the "D", then realized that I really didn't need to.  But I thought that taking all those little backstitches out would be really tough and would screw up the "D".  I used cross stitch and back stitch, and I mostly got the stitches from Erica Wilson's Embroidery Book.

Human rights are for EVERYONE.  Did you know that Aung San Suu Kyi had been released from house arrest in Burma? Many other prisoners of conscience are still being detained.  Please research this topic... Amnesty International needs your help.
